HOUSTON, Jan. 14, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Voxofon (www.voxofon.com), a rapidly growing provider of mobile apps utilizing over-the-top (OTT) voice and messaging services, is among the fastest growing technology companies in Houston, according to the Houston Business Journal's annual rankings. Voxofon was listed sixth, achieving revenue growth of 167 percent from 2010 to 2012. The Houston Business Journal ranks the fastest growing technology companies in the Houston area based on percentage of annual revenue growth.
"We work hard to anticipate what the user community wants and needs, and have been excited by the rapid adoption of Voxofon apps that work with virtually any connected device," said Alexey Goloshubin, CEO of Voxofon. "Our success to date is a direct result of providing value for our users and delivering a positive experience when they use Voxofon to talk and text with friends and family around the world – and the positive word of mouth when they encourage others to try us. We owe it all to our users and pledge to continue improving and enhancing the customer experience."
Voxofon offers free app-to-app texts and calls across any iOS, Android, Windows, or Blackberry device and provides inexpensive international calling and SMS messaging to any phone number including feature phones and landlines. No other OTT provider matches Voxofon's cross-platform capabilities, broad range of functionality or exceptional user experience.
Voxofon recently launched updates to its apps for Android and iOS devices to make it possible for users to earn credits that can be used to make calls and send texts. This enhancement caters to the large community of Voxofon users who want free international calling and messaging – including to those who don't have the Voxofon app. It enables Voxofon users to choose between paying for call credits or earning call credits by doing things they do every day, such as trying new mobile apps, taking surveys, watching videos, playing games and viewing ads.
"Offering users the ability to earn credits is another example of Voxofon's ongoing effort to give users what they want and we have seen very strong demand during these first few weeks," said Goloshubin.
The free download of Voxofon version 5.3 for Android and iOS is available at get.voxofon.com.
